Northwest love stories: For 60 years, 'there wasn't anything else'

Eric Marcoux and Eugene Woodworth will celebrate 60 years together on June 13.

The couple met in Chicago in 1953. Woodworth was a ballet dancer, and Marcoux was just leaving a Trappist monastery.

Marcoux, 82, and Woodworth, 84, participate in Friendly House's Gay and Grey program, and Marcoux has been a Buddhist teacher for 23 years.

The Oregonian caught up with the couple in their Northwest Portland home, which they share with their macaw, Big Bird, to learn their secrets to a healthy and happy partnership.

2. Brought tears to my eyes.

Oh, what I wouldn't give to have found committed love as these two gentlemen.

Being together with someone for 60 years is a lifetime. I ought to know, I'm 60, myself!

Cheers to their health, devotion and love!

3. K&R

This increases my belief that real love is rare and not everybody gets it. If you've been so lucky, cherish and defend that love above anything else.
